A House Republican task force has found that officials from the U.S. military’s Central Command pressured lower-level military analysts to downplay the threats of ISIS and radical Islamists. The Daily Beast reported that the committee's 10-page report confirms allegations by dozens of intelligence analysts that their reports were altered by CENTCOM higher-ups. Last year, more than 50 analysts filed a formal complaint, alleging that their reports on ISIS and Al Qaeda’s branch in Syria - Al-Nusra Front - were being inappropriately altered by senior officials to paint a more optimistic picture. The House panel, led by members of the House Armed Services and Intelligence committees and the Defense Appropriations subcommittee, was created after that shocking complaint was filed. The Daily Beast did not confirm whether the White House was behind any instructions to doctor the reports.
